Hearing Dogs Charity Make Noise About Their Work

 Hearing  Dogs for  Deaf  People

8:02am 26th April 2014

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People will be springing open the gates to its' training centre of excellence today for the annual Spring Open Day.  

The Charity's Buckinghamshire headquarters in Saunderton is set amidst 27 acres of picturesque farmland, and members of the public are invited along for an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience.  

Visitors will learn how the Charity trains their clever hearing dogs to transform the life of a deaf person by alerting them to important sounds like the telephone, alarm clock, doorbell and fire alarm.

Spectators can watch adorable young puppies partake in a typical socialisation class with their trainer, and the Hearing Dogs Display Team will be holding demonstrations throughout the day to show how a fully qualified hearing dog will work.

The Charity will open their specially designed 'training houses' to the public, where the dogs are trained in real life situations. The site also houses hearing dogs in-training during the daytime and these will be available for viewing.
There will be an array of delicious snacks and homemade cakes on offer in the restaurant, as well as gifts available to buy in the shop.

Michele Jennings, Chief Executive of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, says:

"Spring is on its way and we are really looking forward to opening up our beautiful grounds at The Grange to showcase the wonderful work of Hearing Dogs. All proceeds from the event will help us to train more adorable puppies who will grow up to change the life of a deaf person."

The Grange will be open from 11am - 4pm, and tickets can be purchased on the day.

The price for adults is £4, concessions £3, children (5-15) £2 or a family ticket (2 adults 2 children) £10.

The HQ is Wycombe Rd, Saunderton, Buckinghamshire HP27 9NS
